If you are in Paris at the moment...

With a toddler or young child (between 0 and 6 years old), for activities outside the home, we rely on the early learning activities or outdoor games to develop autonomy, motor skills and their 5 senses. It goes from the essential Guignol (or plays and concerts for very young audiences) to pony ridesto parks and gardens with playgrounds and animal watching (zoos, aquariums and especially educational farms).

With the older children (from 6/7 years old until pre-adolescence around 10 to 12 years old)), everything is easy, it is a very nice age group. They are curious, creative, playful and very much in need of outings and activities outside the house. This is a very nice age. Children need to be fed and are eager to learn.learn and of discover. For this age group of 6 to 12 years oldwe love activities that mix play and education like the Escape Games in outdoor, playful and cultural. Or Thematic guided tours who will make them discover a part of the history of France or Paris, a district, a movement of painting while having fun. And always, thea poolthe skating rink, workshops (the Kapla Center), parks (Disneyland Paris or France Miniature).

With pre-teens and teensIt gets more complicated. You will have to be inventive and creative in your proposals (to get them out of their screens). Offer them an Escape Gamea ride on an electric Quad or by electric scooter with a fishing guide, a trip to the bowling alley or visits to the theme of Street Art (a big hit with teens). Pronounce the words park Asterix or Disneyland ParisIt always works!
